MyExtendedHands Helps 20 Women With VVF & Donates Surgical Equipment To Hospitals

The Nollywood star is known to be passionate about her cause for Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF).

Though she has been involved in the cause of raising awareness for the disease for years through the foundation she founded called Extended Hands Foundation, she, however, took it a step further last year with her movie “Dry” which she released the official trailer to last September.

Notable names in the movie industry including Stephanie Okereke Linus, Liz Benson, William McNamara, Darwin Shaw, and Paul Sambo are featured in Dry and it is set to officially premiere in the UK this November.
